This essay is in the form of a letter from the Apostle Matthew to Paul. The letter cogently outlines Matthew's points of disagreement with Paul on issues of doctrine, practice and adherence to the laws according to the Old Testament.
From the Paper:"Dear Paul,
"I have come upon your letter written to the people of Galatia and I am appalled that you take the laws of the Torah so lightly. You claim that you received a revelation from Jesus Christ and are; therefore, an apostle of Jesus. How then could you have misunderstood the reason for his existence here on earth? You have stated, "A man is not justified by observing the law, but by faith in Jesus Christ" and that "by observing the law no one will be justified." You are preaching this to Gentile Christians, telling them they are not required to obey the Law of Moses. You do this because you believe Jesus came to abolish the Jewish laws, while the opposite is true."
